Tom has recently stated that the LCS is finite and large which implies that it has size. He has also stated that the LCS "is" information, and that information has no size. This appears to be a non-sequitur. I think that the LCS does not have "any" physical attributes including mass, texture, color, and size.

large =/= physically large.

My computer storage is also large in one sense but it's also physically tiny. So I guess I didn't use the same metric of physicalness when interpreting largeness.
The overall system can be finite but what is actually the potential to expand and end up, "larger"?

A "virtually sizeless" form of information storage. We have been greatly increasing the density and capacity of information storage over the past several decades. I'm sure we will continue to do so, although we'll have a long, long way to go to reach the "finite" storage capacity of the LCS. Thank you for clarifying the meaning of Tom's statement.
